Dermot Crossley sent me the May 1990 issue of The Comedy BULLETIN with a letter dated 29th May 1990. As far as I recall it was the last letter bar one I ever received from him.
I contributed to the issues for May to September 1988 inclusive, then he wound it up, and his aforementioned letter came out of the blue.
Although as stated I hadn't heard from him for some time, and therefore he did not specifically solicit any jokes from me for this issue, I have a feeling he may have used one or two of the dozens I had sent him previously. Certainly the two jokes under JUMBLE SALE on the back page - about Lloyd Honeyghan and EastEnders sound like the sort of things I would have written. I was a boxing fan at that time and followed the career of Lloyd Honeyghan, and I don't think EastEnders would have been that well known in the Irish Republic in 1990. As far as I know, I was the only contributor to this ill-fated publication apart from its editor/publisher.
Good luck on yer Dermot, wherever you are now.
